Abstract
Background and Objective: Primary dysmenorrhea is the most common gynecological disorder in adolescences and is one of the prime factors for high rates of school or work absenteeism. It leads to decrease productivity, creativity, and work performance due to serious daily stress and social and economic loss. The efficacy of conventional treatments such as NSAIDs is considerable; however the failure rate is still 20-25%. Plant origin drugs have been in use since centuries for dysmenorrhea by Unani physicians; but need to document. The aim of this study was to assess efficacy of rewandchini ( Rheum emodi ) in the management of primary dysmenorrhea. Materials and Methods: A Randomized single blind standard control study was conducted among 45 subjects of primary dysmenorrhea. Subjects in test group (n=30) received three capsules of rewandchini powder two times a day; two days before the expected date of menstruation and three days during the menstruation for three consecutive cycles while control group(n=15) participants were provided with 250mg mefenamic acid capsules on the same protocol. Visual analogue scale and verbal multidimensional scoring system were used for assessment of severity of dysmenorrhea. A four point scale was employed for evaluation of associated symptoms. QOL was assessed by questionnaire develop from American Chronic Pain Association at every follow up. Results: Both the visual analogue scale and the verbal multidimensional scoring system were significantly decreased (P<0.001) after three menstrual cycle intervention in the two groups. Associated symptoms and quality of life were markedly improved in both the groups (P<0.001). Conclusion: On the basis of above finding it can be concluded that rewandchiniis as effective as mefenamic acid andcan serve as an alternative treatment for primary dysmenorrhea where NSAIDs are contraindicated. Future research is certified on large sample size.
